News Synopsis

On both Android and iOS devices, Twitter is releasing a new feature that enables users to combine gifs, images, videos, and memes in a single tweet. The company claimed to be enabling the sharing of different media formats in a single Tweet for everyone.

The company announced in a blog post late on Wednesday that "This feature will roll out globally to iOS and Android, with a chance to see mixed media Tweets on the web," 

Alessandro Paluzzi, a reverse engineer, spotted the functionality for the first time in April. Anyone who wished to share several media types in a single Tweet or thread had to do it before.

Now, when users open the Tweet composer, they may choose and post a mix of up to four different forms of media, including images, memes, GIFs, and videos.

The microblogging site stated that users might change the order of their media when producing a Tweet. To begin combining your material, tap the photo icon in the Tweet composer, it continued.

Currently, the Explore tab video carousel assists users in discovering further videos as well as potentially interesting Tweets and Trends.

It is presently accessible to users of Twitter on iOS and Android in a few selected nations. The improved immersive media viewer, according to the company, extends videos to full screen with a single click, enabling users to quickly get the complete, immersive viewing experience.
